God offers comfort to all

April 26th, 2010

In Second Corinthians chapter one there are some verses that can give us great comfort in our times of suffering. The section heading in the NLT is titled, “God offers comfort to all”. In verse 3-4 it says…

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.  He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

In these two short verse we find that the source of all comfort comes from God. Initially God comforts us in our struggles that we face in this life. He helps us to get through to the other side. He walks with us like the story Footsteps talks about. Then as we have come through the other side, He enables us to comfort others.

I find great strength in knowing that the King and Creator of the Universe is in my corner. He is with me when I go through times of suffering. I am not alone. He tells me that He will never leave me or never forsake me.

I also find great comfort in knowing that once my suffering has passed, I will be able to comfort and support others the way God has comforted me. That is great news and gives me hope in the midst of suffering.

I hope and pray that if you are going through a time of suffering today, that you know the peace and comfort that only God can bring.

God Bless,
